Question about Dell Dimension™ B110 PC Desktop

This requires having a previous disk for windows. You will also have to reformat yourhard drive as to installing an older version on top of a new one will cause problems when booting and the operation of many programs. First you will want to enter bios.
To enter bios you will need to restart unit and continuously press F12 before the windows logo shows. May take a few tries,
Once in bios the mouse is not usable so use arrows and F keys. select boot options make cd/dvd the first selection. Put disk in before you save and exit. nothing will happen but if you don't do it as soon as you turn your unit on you will have keep trying.
press ESC I think it is to save and exit.
Pc will automatically restart. Pay attention it will ask you to hit any key to boot from disk. this will enter the setup section where you will need to delete your drive and reformat. This can take awhile. Once it is done it will return to that previous selection screen asking what you want to do make your selection sit back grab a smoke coffee pizza what have you and relax for awhile but keep an eye n it , it will ask a question or 2. Unit may also shut down and restart a few times on it's own just let it. don't hit anything when it restarts asking if you want to boot from disk, Doing so will start everything all over.
Your going to go through a lot of auto-restarts and a few questions as it near beung usable. It will ask if you have internet and all the fun stuff as to when you first turned on a new pc.
When you are able to log onto windows desktop and online only install updates do not install any third party programs Not even your ant-virus. You want all windows updates before anything. I hope you have at least 2 days about 3 if you are going back to XP. Cp you have to manually search and download updates since the provided update program is no usable. Have fun. Windows Xp updates will be hit and miss until it can update the auto update program but needs various other ones first.
